How is Tobacco Produced?

Tobacco plants are grown in a field, harvested annually with a sickle, and then taken to be cured. Curing can be done several ways, like by the air, fire, flue, or the sun. Once cured, the tobacco is then manufactured into several forms, such as chewing tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, and snuff or snus.
